    I just got a Korg Pitchblack tuner to replace my Boss TU2 because it doesn't have a buffer in it, and the power requirements are 600ma. I only plan to use this as a tuner-not to daisy chain effects, and only have a 100ma output on my ISO-5 power supply. The manual says it only draws 30ma, but to use a supply of 600ma. I should be fine right? Anyone have any issues using this pedal on their boards?

    Yep. You will be fine.

    I power it with my PP2+ and daisy chain with no issues.

    I always thought it was odd that it says it needs a 600mA power supply. Mine works fine off of a regular power supply. I assume the 600mA is needed if you use the Pitchblack as a daisy chain?

    That's what I waqs thinking too, but sheesh, the TU2 runs right off of a regular Boss power supply, and it daisy chains as well.
